Bronx Restaurant Slip & Fall Accident Attorney
Restaurants can be bustling, chaotic places, but you assume that managers and staff will take the same care with the cleanliness of the dining area as you hope they take with your food. As a paying customer, you assume that management will be on the lookout to clean up any slipping hazards as soon as they occur, since food and liquid spills are a known risk in any restaurant.

Ignored maintenance duties can result in injuries for customers
People who have been invited onto a business property as prospective customers have a right under the law to expect those premises to be well-maintained and free from hazards which are hard to see or unexpected. Unfortunately, owners and store managers are not always as vigilant as they should be in looking for slipping hazards.
Restaurant management and staff must inspect the public areas of a restaurant for spills or other slipping hazards on a regular basis, and clean up spills within a reasonable time after learning of them. When this inspection and clean-up doesn’t happen and customers are injured as a result, the restaurant may owe that injured customer money for their injuries.
Injuries from slip and fall accidents can be severe
An unexpected fall can bring about substantial injuries, including:
- Torn or ruptured tendons and ligaments
- Broken or bruised ribs
- Back injuries
- Sprains and strains to joints
- Head injuries, such as concussions or other traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
